Norris Square Neighborhood Project is a unique organization that offers youth and community residents a safe space to explore culture and social-justice issues, create art, and develop their sustainable-agriculture skills. For over 45 years, youth have developed their leadership skills, built relationships with each other and our staff, learned about urban agriculture, and created performing and visual art. Annually, they serve up to 100 high-school-aged youth through their after-school and summer programs. In addition, they serve community members through innovative programming and six Puerto Rican/Latinx culturally-themed garden spaces.  Norris Square Neighborhood Project‘s mission is to unite and inspire youth and families using the strengths of our community: shared cultural wisdom, creative energies, and environmental spaces and experiences.
